Tufts University: Rachael Kipp - Chemistry - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Rachael Kipp | CHEM001 - Chemical Fundamentals | Chemistry2004-07-23

Review:
I think that Prof. Kipp has the capability of becoming a better professor with time. As this year was her first year teaching, she seemed to get a little frazzled when questions that she did not expect were asked. However, she always answered any emails/inquiries promptly, and I never had a problem with her personally, though some people did not get along with her at all. She's learning.

Workload:
The workload was not bad, and frankly as long as you read along in the textbook you should do very well on the tests. Her test questions are fair and can be answered as long as you put in a tiny bit of effort. She also allows you to contest any test score if you feel it is unfair, and from my experience was generous in rewarding any contested points.

Rachael Kipp | CHEM001 - Chemical Fundamentals | Chemistry2004-04-20

Review:
Professor Kipp is not the greatest professor at Tufts, but she does have a good learning curve. Considering this is her first class, she has improved vastly, however the class is still dull and not particularly interesting. Her lecturing style is dry, and she reads directly from the book during lecture. She can be very condescending to students during class when a question is asked regarding some problem or statement she has put up. A fact which is even more remarkable considering how many mathematical mistakes she makes. She is available during office hours and will spend time trying to fill in knowledge gaps; however her attitude of superiority shows through just as much during her office hours as it does during class.

Workload:
Workload is not too bad, especially considering the alternative (Morse), but I would gladly trade a little bit more work for a better lecturer. To be fair, her problem sets and exams are fair and do not try and weed people out.

Review:
Professor Kipp is somewhat concerned about student progress and tries to encourage class attendance. However her lack of the ability to teach basic chemistry makes the class monotonous and useless. Basically, she reads from the book in lecture. The only helpful thing she does is to work out example problems.

Workload:
There was not a lot of work, pretty much just problem sets and lab reports, which help you understand concepts for the test.

Review:
To put it frankly, Kipp is a bad professor. Her lectures are dull and sparsely attended. She does not explain material well and she is difficult to talk to. She has a bad attitude toward anyone with a question, and does not seem to care at all about the progress of her students. In one e-mail recently sent to students about low class attendance, she says, "I get paid either way and you are all adults." In my opinion, her negligence of student progress is a testimony to her poor teaching skills.

Workload:
Workload is very bearable, and reading is optional and assigned only for the student's benefit. If you have had a decent amount of chemistry in high school, there is little work involved. Otherwise, you'll need to keep up with class material.

Rachael Kipp | CHEM001 - Chemical Fundamentals | Chemistry2004-04-09

Review:
An okay professor but she'll probably be better and more organized after her first year teaching.

Workload:
As far as workload goes definitely take her before Morse. Morse's workload is insane and hers in manageable for the people who don't want to dedicate their entire semester to chemistry. Not too much more time than other classes, 1 problem set a week.
